Saab sees another production hiccup

Wed, 08 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Saab, trying to recover from a production shutdown for most of April and May, hit another snag on Tuesday as the company said it had to halt production again because of a supply disruption. The latest issue is expected to be resolved on Wednesday, the company said.

"We will start tomorrow again," Saab spokesman Eric Geers said on Tuesday.

A colleague, Gunilla Gustavs, said a component supply disruption was to blame.

Spyker CEO Victor Muller did not appear aware of the production problems, telling Reuters, "It's possible that not the full capacity is used to make cars. Many suppliers did not make parts during the shutdown, some for almost two months. If you run out of parts, it can impact production."
